Grammy®-winning OutKast members Andre Benjamin (Andre 3000) and Antwan A. Patton (Big Boi) star in this dazzling story in the key of cool. At a sexy, sizzling nightclub, piano player Percival (Benjamin) lives life by the rules, while Rooster (Patton), the club's flashy lead performer, struts his stuff on the stage. But everything changes when greed, fame and murder threaten to destroy them and the place that ties them together. Critics are calling Idlewild "a fresh, hip and imaginative extravaganza that will dazzle and thrill audiences from beginning to end." (Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV)

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Idlewild has some truly breathtaking moments, but borrows too heavily from other similar movies, and the disjointed script is not worthy of talents involved.
Benjamin and Patton have devised a basic Prohibition era gangster story as a background for their newest musical experiment melding modern hip-hop with the jazz and blues of the '30s, all put together with a great deal of visual cleverness and flair.
